Jeff Raupp, CFA
Director of Investments

On this week’s podcast (recorded April 20, 2018),
Jeff discusses the pros and cons of investing a lump sum immediately versus systematically investing an equal amount monthly.

Quick hits:

  • Almost 75% of the time an investor did better with the lump sum investment, with an average return after 12 months of about 8%, versus 4.2% for systematic investing.
  • A systematic plan may make sense for some, as it establishes a strategy for getting into the markets and takes emotion out of the equation.
